I have Revlon Photo Ready powder in 010 fair. I bought this specifically to keep in my purse. Right right before someone takes a photo of me, I quickly dust in on my face to take away any greasiness/shine (as I have acne prone skin.) It looks SO good in photos, it's unbelievable!! It gives you a natural youthful glow, and evens your skin tone, removes any greasiness, brightens your face... WOW! It actually looks better than my Chanel foundation which I realize now is too Matte and looks cakey in photos. I have actually started using Photo Ready as my everyday powder now, and finished with Chanel. It feels so good to discover that I don't need to burn a hole in my wallet on "high-end" cosmetics, and drugstore brands actually work just as good - (if not better, in this case!) I'm going to stock up on this, just in case it's discontinued for some stupid reason. I would be devastated if it was! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product!!! PS. I have sensitive skin and have never broken out from this product. It feels so light and airy on, and my skin has actually improved since using this instead of chanel on a daily basis.

I use this on my combination skin daily over a foundation or tinted moisturizer, and while it's not amazing, it's not bad. I feel as if it were a loose powder it would be so much better. It requires touch ups (don't use the brush it comes with) and doesn't keep my skin matte all day. Also, the mirror is useless-it's just a tiny rectangle.
On the bright side, it adds great coverage! It's gives that smooth, finished look and works well alone, or over foundation.

This powder is very bad, I have sensitive acne prone skin and it totally broke me out in the course of the two days I was using it. It is very chalky and comes off very easily. I also noticed after i bought it and used it that it had "Talc" as the main ingredient. Which is most likely the reason why I broke out so quickly. Never buying this again.
That's what i get for not reading the label first so this is going into the trash can. Very dissapointed.

So in general this is a really nice powder! Great for oily skin. The only issue I have with it is that if you apply your blush/bronzer after this powder, the blush/bronzer doesn't go on as well. I guess I will be using this sparingly, since you don't even need a lot to set your foundation!

I bought the 010 fair and found that it does match my skin. I like how the finish look is but it does not wear well through out the day. After a couple hours it would chalk up on my skin. I have very dry skin so I rarely use powders. I found I had to press this powder into my skin so that it would last all day.

Photo Ready Powder is makeup I have always been going back to years after years. I always want to try new things, but this is the ONLY powder that i can basically put all over my face with no liquid foundation and it still covers and clears all my acne scars. (which I have a horrible amount of scars) This will not break you out as long as you have the proper makeup remover. I really recommend this makeup to all my friends. And even when people compliment on how clear my complexion is I always tell them to try this stuff out. and plus, if you go during a sale you could get buy one get one half off, who doesn't like sales? Try it! And even if you don't like it I know Ulta and Walgreens for sure offer returns. TO ADD ON: I work 7 to 430 and after work with no touchups my face is perfect.

In the package it's so bad! The brush is crap. I used a fluff before a crushed it all up and put it in a sifter. And after that, ahhhh. It's perfect as a loose finishing powder. So airbrushed. Overall not the best but if you purchased it and don't know what to do, smash it up :)

This works so great for me. The powder itself looks shimmery both in the pan and on my skin, but it's not overwhelming or anything. This is the first shimmery product I've used that still looks natural! It provides pretty good coverage for a powder, and it sets my makeup well. I don't find the need to retouch throughout the day. The brush sucked, it was made out of cheap plastic and synthetic fibres, but I don't really mind at all since I have my MAC129SH. It's a little bulky but the pact reminds me of a camera, which fits the theme of "photo ready". There's also a tiny rectangular mirror but I don't use it at all. If I ever run out, I will repurchase.

Cheap and chalky describes this product perfectly. Prior to buying this, I was use to a good quality, finely milled, loose powder. The instant my brush touched this product, powder flew everywhere. So much wasted product. I gave this to a friend who uses it. (I don't know why but I think she likes it)

I just bought this compact this week on the advice of my friend who loves it, and I did like the results, for a $20 (CAD) powder I thought it looked soft and even,and the color match was good.
Unfortunately my skin really does not like it....I'm not overly sensitive but as soon as I applied this (with a kabuki) my skin felt tight and dry. I decided to try it for 3 days just to be sure, by day 3 it felt like there were ants crawling all over my face, I have this awful tingly irritated reaction to it which spread to my arms and neck and triggered an allergic reaction.
I wound up bringing it back for a refund, plus a pack of Benadryl....
The beauty consultant at shoppers was sympathetic and told me that its decent for a lower end product but it does contain parabens and other crap that can cause this reaction.
Everyone is different of course and it might work wonders for you but I would still be a little concerned about the ingredients.

I LOVE this powder! I started using it about a year ago and have never stopped since. First I apply my liquid foundation or my bare minerals foundation and finish it off with some of this. I have to say it makes my skin look soo much better than just with foundation alone. It makes my skin look so smooth and healthy. I do have acne prone skin and some scars but this just covers everything my foundation missed right up. I get so many compliments on my skin and people can't believe I'm only wearing powder. I do have to touch it up once or twice throughout the day because I have oily skin. The ONLY downside to this product is the brush. It gets really rough on your skin after a couples weeks of using it and it takes up a lot of the product so I feel like I run out very quickly. Use a softer brush and your set! I will never stop using this product! Love!

I generally have clear skin and use Revlon Photoready on top of my L'Oreal UV Perfect Sunscreen. I love how it feels light and great for everyday use. My skin looks fresh without the feeling of heavy foundation on. I would definitely buy again.

This product would look lovely in photo shoots; however, I dislike the fact that it is extremely shiny. If i walked onto the streets with this on i would be in a competition with the sun to see who shines brighter (exaggeration). I would recommend this product for people who enjoy taking photo shoots though. This product makes the skin look glowy and silky in photos.

This just doesn't blend into your skin it just sits on top of the skin I need a wet sponge to meld it into my skin wasting time .For 18$ for something so crappy .It has glitter in the formula which you can't see on first glance but when it's on your face you look horrible.I will tick to my e.l.f powder and save me 15 $.

I am now using a different powder but Ive used and loved this product. When it said photo ready on it I thought I have to try it. When i tried it out i loved it. My skin took it in well and love how my skin looked. It didn't make my skin look caked or powdery. The only thing is I feel like I used it up quicker than other powders because I had to keep reapplying because my skin tends to look oily at times.

This has been my go-to foundation for the past several months. I'm constantly looking for foundations that help even out my skin tone and minimize the appearance of my large pores. This works really nicely and holds up pretty well, although I've yet to find a foundation that, 5 hours later, looks as good as it did when I first applied it. The only con for me is that the finish has a hint of glitter, which is probably on purpose, but I prefer a more natural look (I'd rather it not be so obvious that I'm wearing makeup, but that's just me!). However, that hasn't stopped me from using it every day! Overall, a good foundation!

This powder is good... not great! A light/medium amount of coverage, allows a little natural luminosity to come through (no cakey finish!) The powder makes my face appear FLAWLESS in photographs and people always compliment my makeup in general. Great for a drugstore find. Also check out Rimmel's compact powder in Sandstorm (same thing, no luminosity.)
Age: 25-29 Skin: Normal Hair: Brown Eyes: Green
I was shocked to discover this drug store brand gem. I love this stuff! I usually use MAC StudioFix powder, and have to layer it, bc of my not-so-flawless skin / acne scars. But Photo Ready is honestly comparable, if not better than StudioFix (I know, I know.. crazy..)
Its very pigmented and soft, doesn't dry out my skin like some powders can, and the coolest part is that the photo ready part actually lives up to its name.. That white ghost face in pictures that powder can give, yeah - none of that so far with this stuff. :)
I'm a happy, powder rockin' girl.

this product is Terrible. I got it thinking that it would be a high quality brand. No pressed powder has failed me before, so I thought this would do the same. I tried it and Immediatly wanted to return it, but I threw out the receipt. It was 10.99$ at ulta and I deff wanted my $ back! It gives you white patches all over your skin and it looks pasty. Ive only tried the light color and i don't know about the other colors. No thanks revlon!!

This powder does not work. It didn't seem to help my foundation set. I'm not very oily, but even with some shine this worked for only an hour. If you look closely at this powder it has small glitter particles. Why would I want that in my powder? Would not buy this again.
